My Family Tree Support

Question:      Why are the charts not including the individualís   parents?   

Answer:        This is normally caused because you have not created a file for the parents .  Each individual must have a file created for them in the Main File View; otherwise, the links will not work properly. 

Question:      How do I delete the pageÖI get a dialog box that  says Oooops! 

Answer:        This dialog box comes up when youíre trying to delete the first page.  You can use this page a renaming the page to a file youíre trying to create or change it to the name of zzz.  Then go from the Main File View to the Contents View .  This will sort page zzz to the end.  Return to the Main File View and then delete the file. 

Question:      Why canít I access an individualís page from another page? 

Answer:        Broken links are most commonly caused by names misspelled are when additional charters are added to an individualís name.  The individualís name is used to name the page.  Thus, anytime you type in this individualís name it must be exactly as it is on this individualís Main File View page.  Spacing is criticalÖif you add a space between the individualís first and middle for example, the link will not work. 

Question:      I have two family members with the same name.  Is this okay? 

Answer:        No.  Because each page is named from the first 32 charters of the individualís name in the name field, this will cause links to work improperly.  For the second person add (2) or some identifying character and insure these characters are used every time the individualís name is used in the application.  This will ensure your links work properly.  This can also be an issue for GEDCOM  files youíve imported.  The GEDCOM file format supports duplicate namesÖMy Family Tree does not.  However, you can overcome this by adding characters as suggested above. 

Question:      Can I give a copy of My Family Tree to a friend? 

Answer:        You can freely distribute My Family Tree for the free 30-day evaluation period.  Anyone using the application beyond 30-days must pay the registration fee and register the application. 

Question:      Does My Family Tree support the GEDCOM  file format? 

Answer:        Yes.  GEDCOM  file support was introduced with Version 4.0 of My Family Tree.  Although this support is limited, you can import and export primary file data from/to GEDCOM files in the 5.5 version of GEDCOM.  The data supported currently is the individualís name, date and place of the individualís birth and death, spouse, parents , children , and siblings .  Also, limited support for transferring notes is provided.
